New Thermal night-vision Cameras from Raymarine
15 January 2011
Raymarine is proud to preview the new T-Series thermal night-vision cameras at the Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show. Engineered with FLIR thermal imaging technology, the T-Series thermal night-vision cameras make navigation safer with clear video that helps boaters see hazards like buoys, floating debris, rocks, land, bridges, and other vessels, in total darkness. Thermal night-vision cameras can also help find a person in the water faster than any other night-vision technology.
Designed for simple operation, the T-Series thermal night-vision cameras are the first thermal imaging systems to be fully integrated with a multifunction navigation display. E Series Widescreen users can directly control a T-Series thermal night-vision camera using the HybridTouch™ interface to pan, tilt and zoom the camera. G-Series navigation system owners are able to control a T-Series camera using the system’s keyboard and track pad.
This seamless integration gives boaters easy access to thermal imagery alongside their chartplotter, fishfinder, and radar navigation displays. There is also an optional remote joystick control unit; either as an addition to larger systems or for direct camera control when used with other Raymarine displays that have a composite video input.
T-Series thermal night-vision cameras have compact, rugged, marine-grade enclosures, and provide 360° pan and 90° tilt capability for complete coverage. T-Series cameras can be mounted conventionally in base-down camera-upright mode or suspended in a base-up camera-down configuration, dependent on vessel layout and construction.
Best of all, the T-Series camera controls are available at any E-Series Widescreen or G-Series display on the boat, giving skippers the ability to navigate with thermal imagery from the main helm, or via a remote navigation station.
